Trailer-Solutions Provider ready to stun show visitors with new fuel efficient model. Deker Trailers is showcasing for the first time its new Ecodek Fuel Saver trailer at the CV Show on April 24-26 at the NEC. Featured on stand 3355 in Hall 3, the Ecodek combines a fuel efficient profile with a number of interior features, including multi-deck configurations and mesh decks designed to improve operating efficiency. Deker will also unveil a range of financing options from spot hire to long-term leasing, new and used sales.
The aerodynamically designed sloping roof trailers from Deker are already producing up to 12% reductions in fuel consumption for a number of customers across the UK. The company recently announced its first international sales with a delivery of two trailers to Ace Express Freight in the Republic of Eire, where the sleek lines of the new trailer make it an ideal size for the height restrictions of the recently opened Dublin Tunnel.
The Ecodek trailer combines the new fuel-efficient aerodynamic design with Deker’s popular flexible multi-deck construction. The curtain-siders are internally fitted with re-arrangeable decks for optimal loading without stacking. This solution is proving to be very popular with hauliers and especially with pallet networks as it guarantees the integrity of palletised load by eliminating the need to stack pallets on top of one another. The Deker design also incorporates a mesh upper deck that provides excellent visibility for easier and safer loading and unloading. This also reduces potential freight damage and risk of toppling.
“We have sold a large number of our Ecodek trailers to the pallet networks already and we are talking to several operators,” says Paul Sanders, joint MD of Deker Trailers alongside his brother Mark Sanders. “They love the practical benefits of the multi-deck approach and other features we have introduced, as well as the broad range of support solutions we have available, but they are always sold on the increased efficiency and the savings in operating costs.”
Deker Trailers supplies and supports a range of multi-deck stepframe trailers for transport operators. The company is committed to providing innovative quality products with a choice of flexible acquisition options and after-sales support services. Options are tailored to the customer’s requirements and designed to deliver increased operating efficiency and financial benefits.
Deker also has a range of financing options for both new and used sales – from HP purchase, dynamic contract hire options, ECO and OPTI hire packages and leasing packages to spot hire to help operators cover peaks in demands or maintenance downtime. Spot hire is available short or long term from one day to one year with various options on offer. Repair and maintenance contracts are also flexible to suit individual haulier’s needs and are becoming increasingly popular with operators. Paul Sanders comments: “We work with our customers to ensure the most cost-effective solution for their particular operations – everyone’s different and we have a lot of experience in finding what is right for each. It’s a challenge we enjoy.”
Deker compliments the successful truck and trailer rental and sales business Allports Truck Centre, Commercial Vehicle Rental and Truck City which is a highly successful organisation with a fast-growing customer base, located at Fradley Park in Lichfield, Staffordshire.
